Movember 2013 was epic! Here’s a look at a few of the moments that made it great.

Gen Mo Highlights
Thousands of Mo Bros and Mo Sistas across the US stood for change this Movember to help us achieve another record-breaking year. In the US, we had over 219,000 participants grow or support a moustache for the 30 wild nights and hairy days raising over $20.5 million to date! We’ve captured a few highlights from moustache season below because none of this would have been possible without the incredible support of the Generation Moustache.

The world of sports can get pretty competitive, but this Movember 22 NHL teams, 580 MLS athletes and employees, 10 NFL teams, and a few awesome MLB and NBA athletes were united under one flag to change the face of men’s health. Adrian Peterson’s week one Mo inspired him to run for 75 yards and two touchdowns in a Viking win against the Washington Redskins and fellow Mo Bro Ryan Kerrigan. Kevin Alston, defender for the New England Revolution, inspired the entire Mo community. Kevin was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia and was able to get back on the field (and in Mo growing shape) just in time for the MLS Playoffs.

Recognize these famous brand icons? They all have one thing in common – they all grew Mo's this month and raised some big bucks along the way!

Sometimes we need a little Movember inspiration, so this year we had eight amazing Gen Mo Mentors provide guidance and wisdom in fundraising, spirit and style to the Mo community. Mo Mentors included old pros like Nick Offerman and hockey stud George Parros as well as a few new faces like Team Gillette captain Kate Upton and Adrian Peterson who led the charge for team Wheaties.

Gen Mo Mentor Danny Amendola is a wide receiver for the New England Patriots, but he wasn’t the only Mo Bro to suit up in the Patriots jersey this year. Testicular cancer survivor Eric Stout, urologic oncologist Dr. Adam Feldman, and Andrew Held who participates in Movember to honor his father who lost his battle with prostate cancer, all became honorary Patriots’ captains and partook in the coin tosses at three home games at Gillette Stadium.

Mo Bro JJ took moustache rides to a whole new level this Movember.

Tons of folks around the country have been jumping on the hairy Mo train – from The Today Show in New York to Los Angeles Magazine. The power of the Mo dominated airwaves across the country – from sports news where Jay Onrait and Dan O’Toole tracked their Mo progress every week on Fox Sports Live to Ashton Kutcher chatting about his Movember Mo on the Ellen Show.

Movember collaborated with street artist Weirdo to created an epic mural on the side of Neumos in Seattle. Check out this awesome video of Weirdo hard at work on the mural.

While Ron Burgundy got his Mo trimmed high above the streets in NYC, a few Mo Bros got to keep it neat as well.
